Launching of Mongken

Mongken a brand initiated by the Department of Underdeveloped Areas is a handholding initiative launched on 28th January 2020 to create economic opportunities for local designers, skilled artisans and craftsmen from Nagaland, with special focus on the Underdeveloped regions of the State. This ecosystem was created to promote and preserve the traditional knowledge and to patent traditional motifs and weave patterns, while upscaling the local weavers to find a space in the apparel and garment industry.

Mongken will function as a node through which the local products can be marketed by participating in festivals, trade expo in partnership with Tribes India and similar agencies. The garment and apparel are inspired by the 6 Tribes of Eastern Nagaland- Phom, Konyak, Sangtam, Yimchucher, Chang and Khiamniungan.
